Explaining the advantages of metal ceilings

A RIBA-approved CPD which details the benefits of specifying metal systems is now available from Armstrong Ceiling Solutions.

The presentation, which gives architects a 1hr. CPD credit, recognises the degree to which metal systems now play a vital role in Armstrong’s portfolio.

The reasons given for specifying metal ceiling and wall systems are numerous and varied, from their aesthetics to their durability, withstanding rigorous handling, with edges that do not chip and surfaces that do not flake.

They are also easily cleaned without surface damage and humidity resistant up to 90%, even to the extent they can be used externally if back-coated. A variety of coatings also make them dirt resistant (TrioGuard) and anti-microbial (BioGuard).

Armstrong’s engineered metal portfolio is available to suit any building module, with a variety of perforation and colour options to give limitless configurability.

They can also easily accommodate services such as lights, grills, sensors and sprinklers.

The CPD also takes architects through the manufacturing process for tiles, planks, canopies and bespoke (curved, radial and trapezoidal) systems.
